Buddy

We said good-bye to our bunny Buddy this afternoon. We don't know why he stopped eating two weeks ago, but after several vet visits, many doses of medicines and force feedings that he hated, it was time to let him go. Knowing it was the right thing to do doesn't stop my heart from aching.

I'm really sorry, Lynne. Doing the right thing, following life's path, isn't always easy, painless, or without sadness. But it's what we all have to do…and you did the best you could. That's what caring and a loving heart are is all about.

Consider this an understanding hug from a friend. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I know how close a person can get to rabbits. I raised Netherland Dwarf rabbits and they were like part of the family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Of course it is the right thing, but so so hard anyway. We love our fur kids so much, saying goodbye is hard.
Sorry, Lynne.

It's such a pleasure having our pets but it's also very painful when one of them dies. I'm sorry and hope you are feeling better soon!A big HUG goes out to you!

How lucky was Buddy to have had you as his keeper and friend for so long...remembering how you made his life special will help.. difficult as it is..we have always planted a scrub or perennial as a memorial to our furry children! Over the years we have gathered many perennials that have special places in our hearts..:)

Lynne, I'm so sorry. Niblet and I are thinking of you and your family. He especially sends many nosebumps your way, remembering how your card and gift cheered him when he wasn't doing so well.
